I received my PinePhone yesterday and started messing about with it today.

The back is extremely hard to remove. There's a blue pressure mark pretty much in the middle of the screen, which possibly made an appearance during the back removal process. The PmOS app store doesn't work so you have to install software using the terminal, also the apps seem to be desktop ones so nothing fits on the screen properly. The builtin apps that I've tried so far seem to work fine though. I was going to post this from my PinePhone but couldn't be bothered to wrestle with it any further so it's currently living in a drawer.

Guys, I found out that I might have an oyster allergy. Had a few on Friday, and a rash appeared on my left arm soon after. It's a shame, because I've always prided myself on having no food allergies.

At least I can still down peanuts like a champ.

Friend of ours has a purported allergy to iodine, which they say means they can't eat any shellfish. Apparently, they found about the allergy after a CT scan...

I don't think you can be allergic to iodine; it's an essential element in our diets. According to that link it's even hard to overdose on dietary iodine. I suspect it's probably something else in shellfish that's the problem, if that's what triggers the allergy.
I'm not going to argue either case, other than state what they said to me. The allergy was originally "detected" when they had a really bad reaction following an iodine injection (may have happened twice), and they were advised to avoid shellfish. I'm no expert, so have no further comment.

I recently discovered Hans Rosling. This video is from 2015.


Do you like statistics and comparisons between countries? Here's a nice website to compare lots of different things between nations:

Also this way I can change the disks a bit easier if I need to..

I've found an easier/less destructive method for getting the back cover off've my PinePhone. Stick a plastic pick in between the notch on the back cover and the phone, then slide it round the phone to undo the clips, then lift off the back cover.

Hey guys, I just confirmed that I'm one of the crazy people who will be going on a beach vacation during COVID-19. October 3rd through the 10th.

Don't worry though, my older sister who planned the whole thing is a physician's assistant; I'm sure she'll be having us take all the necessary safety precautions.
